New Delhi: A 39-year-old man killed his female friend by stabbing her 30 times when she turned down his marriage proposal, police said. The accused has been arrested.
The body of 23-year-old Baljeet Kaur was found seven days after her murder at a house the accused had rented in Okhla in southeast Delhi.
"Aneesh confessed to have killed Kaur. In a fit of anger, he stabbed her 30 times with a scissor," a police official said.
On April 23, Aneesh brought Kaur to his rented accommodation. He proposed marriage, and killed her after she refused probably because of the age difference, the official said.
He then locked his house and fled.
Both were residents of Sangam Vihar and knew each other for the past two-three months.
Kaur was working as an executive at a mobile service provider in Okhla.
After a complaint about Kaur going missing was lodged with the police by her parents, the investigators went through her phone number and found that she had made numerous calls to Aneesh.
"We launched a hunt for Aneesh, but he was found missing too," the police official said.
Aneesh was nabbed on April 30 by police in Haridwar, Uttrakhand.
